There’s something sketchy about Old Moses. The records indicate he may have had as many as 3 wives – possibly at the same time – and as many as 12 children. There are numerous and conflicting records. The information below seems to be agreed upon by most:
- Before Nov. 4, 1722: arrived in the US
- Nov 4, 1722: he joined the Dutch Reformed Church of Nesaminy, Pa.
- Occupation: school master
- His Last Will and Testament was written Mar 12, 1735 and probated Mar 16, 1735 in Newcastle Co., De.
- MacGillebhain is White in Gaelic.
